Most often this is done with their urine, fecal matter and saliva. They are also known to spread diseases like Dysentery and Salmonella that make people very ill. They also bring hitchhiking parasites in your home like fleas and ticks that also become infected as well. These parasites can then spread the same diseases as the rodents.
